The Others (1)

This is a post by...well...Anon. She'd prefer to be that. Anon. Am not complaining because (a) she's really cool and (b) she's that one person who has 'submitted' her 'entry' first. So I completely love her. Thank you, Iren...erm...Anon.

Anon's Post

Her handwritten entries appear in the phonebook.

Her favourite soaps are bought every month.

Her make-up, her comb, her sindoor lie on the dressing table.

Her books and magazines rest on the bookshelf.

Her investment statements arrive regularly.

Her perfume emanates from her wardrobe.

Her favourite colours adorn the furnishings, the linen.

Her voice fills my dreams.

The sound of her bangles suffuses my imagination.

It’s two months now.

Her presence is everywhere.

Especially as the lump in my throat.
